Karen is Howie’s wife extraordinaire, and manager of their mountain retail shop in Bishop, CA – Sage to Summit. We work with ‘S2S’ to easily outfit our guests at promotional prices. Karen is an avid backcountry skier, trail runner, and rock climber, but since 2010 she has focused her limited free time and energy on being an amazing mom. She still helps develop and guide our local and international mountain running programs and covers the office duties on occasion. She gives SMG unbelievable strength and support. We couldn’t do it without her!
